Additional Info

A long one act, one full act. The story of Mary Lamb, sister of the writer Charles Lamb, and a gifted person in her own right, who, in a moment of frustration and madness murdered their mother with a steak knife. Lamb's attempts to care for her, her struggles with her intermittent madness, their friend Coleridge, and the visions that haunt them. Darkly funny.
